OPI Femme de Cirque SoftShades

I am super down for OPI SoftShades. I love light pinks and milky sweet colors that are just pure femininity. Sometimes I get overdosed on bright shimmers and vibrant foils or blingy glitters and I just need a good detox. SoftShades are the perfect thing for a "color cleanse". The new Femme de Cirque collection includes four colors that exude delicate tenderness.  I adore the OPI Pro-Wide brush too so this collection is a winner in my book.
In the Spot-light Pink is a sheer "pop" of pink jelly. It is a great color for making your nails look ladylike but still youthful and fresh. I always complain that my nail beds are too pink, but then I love wearing shades like this that make them a shade pinker haha, I'm weird. This is four coats because I like it to look squishy.
Step Right Up! is a pale creamy pink crème. I painted on three-ish coats and it was pretty fair, considering these colors usually streak pretty bad. This would be a great color for a wedding mani or pedi.
I Juggle...Men is an iridescent shimmer topcoat that glitters in colors of blue, purple, and pink. The micro glitter is subtle but smashing! Very pretty and my photo doesn't do it justice unfortunately. This is three coats.
So Many Clowns, So Little Time is a nude toned pink that is a little more on the squishy sheer side than the other pale crème in the collection. I tried this as a tip color for an American Manicure and it worked very well, but I messed it up before I could get a picture of it haha. This is four coats.

  3. I love all of these and I'm going to buy them all! In the Spot-light Pink is to die for as far as I'm concerned!

  4. I want all of these, weirdly, but I think that's just your nails, Kellie... they make me want everything. I don't want So Many Clowns, So Little Time, though... I have an irrational fear of clowns! Thanks for posting these, I haven't seen them much yet and I've been craving colours like this lately!

  12. They look nice on you but I don't want them for me, I don't wear a lot of pale pinks and I had a bad experience with another similar shade by OPI :(
    The top coat is pretty :)

  14. Great swatches. I bet In the Spot-light Pink would be a great french base. I really like Step Right Up!

    I'm all out of these pink/ white sheer polishes, so I'll be getting the whole collection.
    Have I ever said how much I love sheer pinks and whites on you? Just suits you so well!

  19. Your swatches are great, as always, but what the Heck is the meaning of the name "So Many Clowns, So Little Time"? I am terrified of clowns, so that name doesn't sit well with me. Eewww.
